IMDB Rating: 7.2
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 6.3
Christian Science Monitor -
The director of "Rushmore" and "The Royal Tenenbaums" scores his most funny-sad movie to date.
Rolling Stone -
Wilson drops the ironic smirk to give a sincerely affecting performance. His scenes with Murray provide the ballast when the script veers off into unconvincing pirate attacks and animated sea creatures.
San Francisco Chronicle -
It's almost a great movie. For half of its running time, Anderson maintains a distinct and arresting tone of vague absurdity, and then he loses control and the film begins to dip into silliness. Individual scenes become labored. Yet even at its worst, The Life Aquatic is always interesting -- there's really nothing else like it.
USA Today -
Nothing but attitude.
